## What are prime numbers?

A Prime Number is any numbers that can not be divided by any number other than itself and the number one. For example, 11 is a prime number because there are no other numbers other than 1 and 11 that will divide 11

Still dont get it? Take the number 12, 12 can be divided by 1 and 12 but it can also be divided by the numbers 2, 6, 3 or 4. Therefore 12 is not a Prime Number but 11 is!

# Prime numbers and fractions made easy!

Special design of the book and game make learning prime numbers fun and easy to learn today!
The math game interactively challenges you to "factor down" a number into it’s prime numbers. Lessons start out easy and get progressively challenging,
helping you to build on your knowledge.

The math book on CD contains a clear explanation of what prime numbers are, and then reinforces each lesson using fractions. The reason why fractions are used when teaching prime numbers is to help you to think of larger numbers as combinations of smaller ones, smaller ones that become prime numbers.

As you get better at learning and underdstanding prime numbers working with fractions then becomes easier and easier!
